Kevin Durant was always a dominant talent on the courts starting from his rookie years playing for the Seattle SuperSonics/Oklahoma Thunder.
But when he joined the Golden State Warriors, Durant cemented his legacy winning multiple championships along the way.
Here’s our pick for the perennial league MVP candidate’s best rookie cards available on the market (with links below to see the listings to buy or bid on).
1. 2007-08 Upper Deck Exquisite Collection Rookie Patch Autograph card #94
Not many collectors will be able to afford this Durant rookie card.
But it’s high value for the on-card autograph, great patch and low print-run numbered to just 99.
The ones that are available on eBay typically are listed for six-figures.
2. 2007-08 SP Authentic Rookie Patch Autograph card #152
Here’s another sweet rookie card that is on-card and has a patch relic with it.
What makes it much more affordable then the aforementioned Exquisite Collection card, is that it’s numbered to 299.
Still, a graded card will cost you a few thousand. Check out the listings below.
3. 2007-08 Fleer Hot Prospects Rookie Patch Autograph card #123
Here’s a nice card that’s more available than the other two listed but still contains an autograph (although it’s on a sticker), as well as a small patch relic.
For those who like chasing parallels, there are a couple for this card. The Red Refractor is numbered to 25 and the Blue is even more rare at a print-run of 10.
